Sin City 2 is on
It looks like we might finally get a chance to see Sin City 2 as now the second voice from the cast and crew speaks out about the intended start date, Rosario Dawson, and she's confirming what Frank Miller has already said.
While Miller said that the script and date are set, Dawson came out and confirmed it, she's back in April to start filming the sequel.
From an account I read somewhere the other day, and I'm afraid to say I cannot for the life of me find it since the browsers history is at work, the biggest stumbling block to date has been Robert Rodriguez left the Directors Guild of America over the fight he lost to co-credit Frank Miller with directorial status on Sin City (Filmstalker review).
Now that seems to be over because Frank Miller has been talking about a start date next year and a completed script.
“Sin City 2 is written...It's mainly a matter of working out the details of the production. I'm hoping to do it with Robert Rodriguez again in the same circumstances that we did the first one, and we could be shooting as soon as April.”
Well that's good news, but it isn't solid, definite, but it does sound like the whole DGA thing is sorted and the film is going ahead.
That's something Rosario Dawson reiterates, although she does sound a little like she's repeating Frank Miller's comments. Over at IESB they caught her saying that the script is complete and that they are starting April with her reprising her role of Gail.
There's no confirmations on the cast list, but I guess Dawson is back, and there are rumours about Rose McGowan too, but then she's attached to everything Rodriguez is doing. Rumours also suggest Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, Michael Clarke Duncan, Brittany Murphy, Devon Aoki, Michael Madsen and Powers Boothe.
We'll have to wait and see who the cast list fleshes out to be, but it sees that Sin City 2 is moving forward and we could actually see it happening. The question is, is it just a little too far in the past now to take advantage of being a sequel?
Now the “wow” factor has gone and Frank Miller has thrown in The Spirit in between, this one will have a lot to do to grab the same amount of audience I think.
